Shane Morris is a Michigan kid who will be staying in his home state to play quarterback for the Michigan Wolverines.
Morris didn’t commit to the Wolverines in 2012. Instead, he told Michigan head coach Brady Hoke that he was going to be in Ann Arbor when he became a college freshman back in 2011, when he was only a high school junior at De La Salle.
He is listed as a pro-style quarterback, with a 6'3", 201-pound body. He will be a change of pace for Michigan, since he isn’t as fast as Denard Robinson or Devin Gardner, as he runs a 4.80 40-yard dash time, according to 247 Sports.
According to both Rivals and 247 Sports, Morris is the top player in Michigan. The sites differ on where to rank Morris among fellow quarterbacks. Rivals has him as the second-best player, while 247 Sports has Morris ranked at No. 3.
Morris may not see the field for a couple of years, but when he does, he will have a lot of promise surrounding him being such a highly rated prospect.
